I Am Toto

Hello, friends!  I'm up at the Paper Bakery Kits today with 
a sweet (if I do say-so myself) layout that I put together using one of the photos from my 
daughter’s last dance recital; as the title implies, she was TOTO :)   Yes, Dorothy’s Toto
 I started out with a light aqua cardstock and went to fun-town with all of the bright colors and textures
 found in the February Paper Bakery Scrapbook Kit!  After drawing out my circle with a template, 
I attached strips of the yellow dot washi tape to mimic rays of sunshine.  
And what better paper to use for a rainbow than the multi-colored striped paper by My Mind’s Eye.
 I used some green letter stickers from my stash to complete the title and layered it with the paper doily, colorful die-cut and flair buttons.  I love the added texture AND hint of sparkle brought by the sequins
 (yep, they’re in the kit too!)  I just attached them to the die-cut with brads.
 The white alpha stickers by Jillibean Soup made the perfect little sub-title around the sun. 
 I used my brand new dies by My Favorite Things ( to whip up some clouds from the patterned paper.  With the three pieces of flair, I created a visual triangle that helps to frame my photo and make it the focal point.  I was hooked on flair, as they’re all over my creations this month :)
The February Paper Bakery Kits are now shipping...grab yours today!
Back tomorrow with a little Unity {inspiration}
See you then!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
